King Nut Companies, a nationwide distributor that has been around for more than 75 years, has recently called a product recall on its peanut butter. Best known for this, and its gourmet nuts and snacks, a 5 lb tub of creamy peanut butter has just been tested positive for salmonella bacteria.
King Nut brands are primarily used in hospitals, elementary schools and restaurants. Several residents from a senior care center fell ill after consuming the peanut butter, and an opened container from the facility also tested positive for a strain of salmonella typhimurium, which causes nausea, vomiting and abdominal pains.
Although it has not been proven this case is linked to the outbreak occurring in the United States, there are strong correlations. Further tests will be conducted.
If you or someone you know has suffered an illness from a product recall, it is highly recommended you contact a personal injury lawyer at 800-242-2874 to receive compensation for your struggles.
